Evening Express (City Final) - - Scotland Today -

THE or­gan­is­ers of Ed­in­burgh’s Hog­manay cel­e­bra­tions have launched a cam­paign urg­ing young Scots to re­flect upon what is best about their coun­try.

The drive, en­ti­tled #ScotWord, is invit­ing peo­ple to choose one word that best an­swers the ques­tion: “What makes you proud to live in Scot­land?” The cam­paign is en­cour­ag­ing those be­tween the ages of eight and 26 to take part.

Scot­tish singer and song­writer Nina Nes­bitt is fronting the cam­paign. She said: “I’m proud to be part of the #ScotWord project as I’m pas­sion­ate about help­ing the younger gen­er­a­tion of Scot­land have ac­cess to great op­por­tu­ni­ties and build a bet­ter fu­ture to­gether.”
